And that way you'll be less likely to have annoying driver conflicts.

x1950pro Awesome card. Shouldnt be too expensive considering the x1950XTX is 460. But it won't be out until october. It uses "dong-less" crossfire, based on the RV570. From rumors, it is supposed to be $200. So very good deal here, that is, if you can wait

Hahaha, I just had to laugh...

It's "dongle-less," meaning unlike previous CrossFire configurations requiring the external dongle, it'll either use the PCI-E bus or use a SLI-esque PCB bridge(s).

Hahaha, dong-less...

PCI-Express you mean. PCI-X is completely different. how much is that in USD? It should be around 200 right?
